Biodiesel Board Hires Communications Manager

Aug 22, 2018
Turner to help lead biodiesel promotion for National Biodiesel Board


Contact: Kaleb Little

JEFFERSON CITY – The National Biodiesel Board welcomes a new addition, Communications Manager Samantha Turner, to their staff this week. Turner comes to NBB from Monsanto, where she served as their Food and Nutrition Engagement Communications Manager.

“We are extremely excited to welcome Samantha to the NBB team,” said NBB Communications Director Kaleb Little. “Our members will benefit greatly from both her technical communications training as well as her experience working with various membership organizations. She will be a key piece in NBB’s efforts to continue to grow the biodiesel industry.”    

In this role, Turner will work to shape the growing biodiesel industry, as well as promote the National Biodiesel Board and its vision. She is responsible for the development of communication strategies for the team and plans to support the industry through content enhancing the biodiesel narrative.

Turner grew up on her family’s fourth generation row crop farm in Norborne, Missouri. She earned her bachelor’s degree in Agricultural Education from the University of Missouri, Columbia. After graduation, she returned to her alma mater to receive her master’s degree in Agricultural Leadership, Communication and Education.

NBB’s communications programs provide coordinated, consistent messaging for the biodiesel industry and help defend against misinformation that would otherwise hamper consumer acceptance and growth. Along with an expert staff, NBB harnesses the power of eight national and specialized public relations and communications agencies to provide access to a substantial network of additional biodiesel and communications expertise on behalf of the membership.

Samantha has previously worked for an array of agriculture and membership organizations including the Missouri Soybean Association, Missouri Farm Bureau, Osborn Barr, and the University of Missouri College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources.

Made from an increasingly diverse mix of resources such as recycled cooking oil, soybean oil and animal fats, biodiesel is a renewable, clean-burning diesel replacement that can be used in existing diesel engines without modification. It is the nation’s first domestically produced, commercially available advanced biofuel. NBB is the U.S. trade association representing the entire biodiesel value chain, including producers, feedstock suppliers, and fuel distributors, as well as the U.S. renewable diesel industry. NBB is celebrating its 25th year as an organization in 2018.
